Brighton Travel Blog› entry 2 of 2 › view all entries
6am-We frantically ran into Liverpool street station and went straight to the ticket booth to purchase our tickets! The guy behind the counter tells us that trains to Brighton don't leave from Liverpool. Damn. Oh well, the tube is open so hopped onto the circle line and went to King's Cross. First we called Louise to tell her to come meet us as we were supposed to be seeing her the next day. She decided to give it a pass. I mean her sister is supposed to be having a kid any mintue now...I guess we can except that!! Hahaha.
We got to Kings Cross to buy our tickets and found out that the train actually leaves from St.
6:39am-We are now on the train and on the way to Brighton. Sitting on the train were thinking, wtf?? Are we seriously on our way to Brighton right now?? Train was pretty fun...didn't get up to much. Just chatted and snoozed here and there.
7:55am-We are in BRIGHTON!!!!!!! It's actually fairly cold lol. We were at the station for a while waiting for Hannah to go to the washroom and Ben (Ben Brett) and I were looking for some beers. As Ben says...there is nothing like a good morning beer. Well maybe a good afternoon beer....and then a good night beer as well! lol. The M&S in the train station had weird beer that we had never heard of before and decided to give it a pass.
Along the way we found and off license and got 6 Strongers for £5.50. CRACK. Ahhh refreshing. Only me and Ben were drinking...I think we are alcoholics lol. Well Ruby did have a bit as well. Since it was pretty cold Warren had given me his jacket and we looked like the biggest hobos! It was 8:00am in the morning, we haven't slept, Ben has his crazy beard going on and I'm wearing two jackets and were drinking cider...nice!
Eventually we came across the Pavilion which is so nice! We walked around to the front and saw a bit of the grounds. Ben Brett also saw his very first squirell and got quite excited lol. The Pavilion didn't open until 9:30 though so we decided to go to the beach first and come back later.
8:30am-We finally got to the beach! I will never ever forget this moment.
OMG the beach was so fun. We were running around in the sand and into the water. We took lots of action shots jumping in the air and Ben and Ben were doing handstands etc. The sand felt so nice under my feet and the water wasn't too cold. I definately got my second wind and had so much fun just laughing around and playing.
After we were finished in the water we went back up to where all our jackets were and just lied on the beach. Even though it is a rocky beach the pebbles are all fairly small so it was quite comfy to lie on.
11:30am-After some time sleeping on the beach we decided to get up and find some food as we were all pretty hungry. We walked along the water where there is tons of caffes and restaurants and we stopped at a little one that was all day breakfast. I really wanted pizza so got that instead lol. The umbrealla on our table blew over and knocked over our drinks (and my coffee!!!!) but luckily Hannah has some good reflexes and caught it lol.
During lunch I got up and went to the washroom. It was here that I realised how BURNT I was. As I was out of the sunlight and in "normal" sunlight I could actually see that I was no longer white but RED! I guess thats what sitting in the sun for 4 hours without sunscreen will do to you lol.
After lunch we decided to go walk back into town and through the "Lanes" and look in the shops and get some icecream. I really started to feel like shit as I haven't slept now for over 24 hours, have super bad allergies that were making me sneeze every minute, and my skin was on fire! We eventually got some icecream and I stole Hannah's water bottle and felt a little bit better lol. From here we decided to call it a day and walk back towards the train station.
As we were walking back we got held up as we were crossing the street due to a whole bunch of people on bikes.
2:15pm-We caught the train back to London. This train was nicer then the one we got in and it took us to Victoria station instead of King's Cross.
3:20pm??-We arrived to Victoria and were about to say our goodbyes when Warren called Ben589 and found out that Ben, Wendy, and Tiffany were just right by Victoria station and Warren had to meet up with them to get his house key.
After a while Ben (smeeb) decided he better get back to his cousins and then catch the train back to Canteburry. It was so good to meet Ben and I hope he comes and parties it up in Spain with us for 10 days. While we were sitting there I decided I really wanted a curry and asked Ruby if she wanted one as well. She said she could go for a curry and we decided to go to Masala Zone in Camden to get one. Well if were going to Camden we might as well go to 55 for 2-4-1 happy hour and make this a 24 hour party. We passed the idea by Ben and Hannah and they were like, why not?!?! So we decided to not end the partying here but to continue, so that it could be officially 24 hours of partying together.
Warren had to get back home because he had to be in Norwich that night seeing Garreth and Helen but I am sure if he didn't already have plans he would have came with! Ben and Hannah decided they would rather have Wagamamas so when we got to Camden we split up and they went there and Ruby and I went to Masala Zone. Yay for Butter Chicken! The food was sooo good but we felt really really full after lol. We finished up and paid just in time to make it to 55 for 6pm.
It was good to be back at our bar and Hannah hasn't been there in forever so she got to see all the boys again before she goes off to Wales tomorrow.
7:31pm- I could not stay out there for another 29 minutes to make it 24 hours so we just had to leave. Everyone was too tired lol. We said our goodbyes at Camden station and Ruby and Ben caught their trains while Hannah and I went North to go to my house. We made it home just as it hit 8:00pm so I guess it was technically 24 hours!
Felt so good to shower and brush our teeth and then we went to bed FINALLY.
